Turkish-Backed Militants Started Fighting Each Others Just Few Hours After “Unifying”

Illustrative image

A few hours after merging into a unified group, factions of the National Syrian Army (NSA) and the National Front for Liberation (NFL) clashed  in the Turkish-occupied area of Afrin in northern Aleppo.

The clashes, which took place in the district of Jandaris, erupted late on October 4 between militants of the NSA’s al-Sharqiyah Army and the Ahrar al-Sham Movement, a key NFL faction.

Local sources said that fighters of the Ahrar al-Sham Movement harassed girls related to militants of the al-Sharqiyah Army. This provoked the clashes. Several militants were reportedly injured or killed in the clashes, which lasted for several hours.

“Meetings were reprotedlly held in Freiday’s night in order to solve the disagreement [between the Ahrar al-Sham Movement and the al-Sharqiyah Army,” the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported.

The incident occurred a few hours after the NSA and the NFL announced their merge into a unified group. A step that was apparently facilitated by Turkey, which is supporting both factions.

Despite the supposed merge, each faction of the NSA and the NFL maintained its own leadership. This indicates that the step was a mere propaganda move. Afrin clashes hint this fact.

they are defeated anyway and are just holding off the inevitable as long as possible. once the SAA and the russians are hot on their heals they’ll raise the white flag and surrender. Syria will be retaken in ts entirety by Assad and the helpers Iran and Russia, the kurds will be proved to have bet on the wrong horse again, for the umpteenth time and the unhinged states of A will lick the wounds from yet another defeat – they’re used to it and the squatters will be packing their stolen stuff preparing for the next diaspora.

Surrender? They’ll more apt to turn tail and flee back to Turkey.

Zionism = EVIL

These headchopper scum are the lowest form of life on earth, at par with Zionists.


Sdf iscalso a coalition. As such, the SDF coalition seems much firner than the jihadi coalition. UJFG, united jihadis for genocide.

ypg.. pkk.. Yankees.. jew.. finer coalition?


For your uninformed or trolling info : SDF = YPG+YPJ, Sutoro, Sanaadid forces, Jaiys Al thuwwar, MMC, , the new MC’s, Turkman militia, Armenian militia, int. Volonteer militia, and more. I refer your uninformed self to Wikipedia.

As far as I know there is no jewish component, but other then the sectarian other players, a jewish Syrian militia would be welcome, if it existed.

Maybe you better go hide among SAA trolls.


rats eating rats..

Willing Conscience (The Truths

LOL, harassing women who have to wear burkas isn’t the smartest thing to do, apart from antagonizing the women’s fanatically protective relatives, which is bad in itself, you wouldn’t know what they really looked like under the burkas anyway, they could’ve been pig ugly.

Assad must stay (gr8rambino)
